I get a lot of questions about which kitchen utensils I prefer when baking, so today I thought I’d share my “top 7 baking utensils.” This list applies most specifically to baking cupcakes, but I think anyone who enjoys baking could benefit from this list. Why 7? Because that happened to be how many items I strongly recommend, that’s why 😉 This is not a definitive list by any means, but these are definitely the things that I love and…

I’ve had the ingredients for this granola sitting in my pantry for weeks, and I finally found the time to make it! Putting this recipe together was simple because I just tweaked my basic chunky granola recipe from a few posts back. Nothing to it! A couple people have asked me how I usually eat granola. I honestly just eat it kind of like cereal, using just a little almond milk. Buuuut I’ve also found that it tastes great on…

For some reason I haven’t posted this even though I’ve had the photos edited for ages! I think it’s because I’m extremely picky about food photos, and I felt like these were teetering the line of “not quite good enough” and “heck yeah, I love these.” Haha.

I stocked myself up on recipe cards thanks to Rifle Paper Co., but I was having a really hard time finding some stylin’ recipe box dividers. Then I remembered my collection of vintage-style postcards… I like to pick up cool looking postcards whenever I’m traveling somewhere, and I…

How to Make Chunky Granola // Easy Customizable Recipe!

January 8, 2018

In this post I wanted to establish kind of a “create-your-own granola recipe.” It’s a basic chunky granola recipe, with guidance on how to customize it to your liking. So basically you could make ten different kinds of granola with this one recipe! You could make cranberry coconut, pumpkin cinnamon pecan, blueberry chia, coconut mango, double chocolate…so many possibilities! No matter what you decide to make, I promise you’ll end up with nice, chunky, kinda-healthy granola at the end 😉…

My New Year’s Resolution for 2018

January 1, 2018

Happy new year, everyone! How did you ring in the new year? Nate and I ended up getting together with a few friends and doing a progressive dinner. We were in charge of appetizers, so we did cheese fondue (thanks for the recipe, Mel’s Kitchen Cafe!) We used baguette, cauliflower, lil’ smokies, pretzel chips, and Granny Smith apple chunks as dippers. It was a success, I think! We also played Codewords and Pit. If you haven’t played either of those…
